For the similarly titled comic book, please see Hide & Seek.

Hide and seek was a game originating on Earth, where one person counts with their eyes closed while all the other players try to hide from him. When the counter is done, they would go out and try to "seek" the other players.

This game was popular among children on cargo freighters in the 22nd century. In 2151, while Enterprise NX-01 was docked with the ECS Fortunate, three of the children were playing hide and seek. One child ran past T'Pol and hid behind an access panel. When the seeker came by and asked T'Pol if she'd seen "Nadine", T'Pol simply responded that she didn't know which child was named Nadine. (ENT: "Fortunate Son")

In 2369, to help Amanda Rogers learn to use her new Q-powers, Q played a game of hide and seek with her, while she tried to find him. Some locations he hid at were inside the warp core and on the outside of the ship's hull, reminding her not to think on such Human terms. (TNG: "True Q")

In 2370, while avoiding detection in the USS Rio Grande, a replicant of Miles O'Brien claimed he could "play hide and seek with the best of them." (DS9: "Whispers")
